My band plays alot around here (RI/MA) and lately I have been noticing a trend. Other bands leaving as soon as they are done playing. For some reason this drives me crazy. Because they are usually the same ones complaining about not getting people out to shows and no one supporting local bands. All the guys in my band always stick around for every other band even if we go on first. And we always try to talk to them after. Doesn't anyone believe in networking anymore? It's a good way to get more gigs in places you might not have played yet. I also see guys loading their gear in or out along the front of the stage when another band is playing. I have asked club owners why they let guys get away with that and they just shrug their shoulders. Its like they are going out of their way to be rude.
